Gu Langu sometimes feels fortunate that he doesn’t have emotions, so he won’t experience sadness.
But now, Gu Langu suddenly wishes to have a little, just a little, bit of real emotions to share with his pet, to experience true feelings.

After informing Yu Jin that there hasn’t been any news of electromagnetic storms invading for nearly half a year, their conversation came to an end.
They are now waiting for Brother Nan’s return to determine the authenticity of the cold wave.

Migration is, after all, a major operation that involves many aspects, such as selecting the migration destination, ensuring the necessary supplies during the migration, and preparing for potential battles during the process.

Yes, battles.
On the precious and scarce Cang Zhan Star, the biggest prerequisite for survival is a stable and habitable environment.
Due to the misuse of genetic weapons, all the original inhabitants of Cang Zhan Star perished, and with the extinction of higher intelligent life, Cang Zhan Star plunged into chaos.

During that era of war, the survival or extinction of a medium-level technological development planet like the Cang Zhan Star was insignificant compared to the entire Cang Star System.
So when the Cang Star System remembered Cang Zhan Star again, it had already become a purgatory.

Without humans to maintain daily operations and accompanied by frequent geological and natural disasters, nuclear pollution, genetic contamination, and technological regression spread uncontrollably.

After a hundred years, the environment of Cang Zhan Star finally achieved a certain degree of stability, but it was still far from comfortable.
Coincidentally, as the interstellar war came to an end and the invasion from the Xian Ge Star System ceased, the Cang Star System finally had the capacity to clear various forces, entering a period of internal strife.

In the end, it’s a matter of survival of the fittest.
However, the turmoil gave birth to countless different voices and powers.
It was impossible to completely eliminate them all, so those doomsday planets that could survive and had no high mining value became the best destination for prisoners of war.
This roughly sums up the development trajectory of Cang Zhan Star.

Over the past century, most of the original inhabitants of Cang Zhan Star have perished, and the surviving flora and fauna have undergone certain mutations.
Fortunately, the genetic and nuclear contamination has faded over time.

However, the natural environment of Cang Zhan Star hasn’t recovered with time.
The recovery of the natural environment is an extremely lengthy process.
In reality, land covers half of the planet’s surface, but only a small portion is truly suitable for human habitation.
With significant temperature fluctuations, if one wants to live comfortably, one must undergo migration.
And each migration means a fierce battle, as only the victors have the capital to survive in a safe environment.

Unfortunately, Shu Shuishui, who wanted to learn more about the current situation of Cang Zhan Star, fell asleep unknowingly, unable to resist Gu Langu’s handsomeness.

Gu Langu considered waking Shu Shuishui up to eat several times, but Shu Shuishui only turned over and continued sleeping, reluctant to wake up.
Seeing this, Gu Langu gave up on the idea and instead focused on thinking about where the little dormouse would sleep at night.

In the afternoon, around three o’clock, Gu Langu began wandering in the base’s warehouse, trying to find a comfortable bed suitable for Shu Shuishui.
But obviously, there was no bed specifically designed for Shu Shuishui’s size.
After all, who would collect such a small bed? Isn’t it just a toy?

Unable to find a bed, Gu Langu wasn’t discouraged.
As someone who was skilled at making detectors, he immediately gathered wood, fabric, and cotton to personally create a comfortable bedding for Shu Shuishui.

At around 8 o’clock in the evening, Gu Langu, who hadn’t eaten dinner, finally finished his work.
A solid wood bed measuring 20 centimeters in length and 10 centimeters in width was placed on the bedside table.
The bed was covered with a soft cotton mattress and a set of disinfected blankets.
The color of the sheets and blankets was a deep green, like the color of seaweed growing in the sea.
Gu Langu carefully selected this color fabric among various colors, believing that Shu Shuishui would surely like it.

Gu Langu carefully took Shu Shuishui out of his pocket and found that the little dormouse was very well-behaved when sleeping, hardly moving at all.
Only when disturbed by the outside world would Shu Shuishui impatiently kick his legs and turn over.

Shu Shuishui was sound asleep, and there was no need to worry about the quality of a dormouse’s sleep.
Gu Langu transferred Shu Shuishui from his pocket to the bed, and Shu Shuishui only changed positions.

Gu Langu looked at Shu Shuishui lying on his back and wasn’t sure if it was normal for a mouse to sleep in that position.
Nevertheless, he carefully covered Shu Shuishui with the small green blanket.

It was just past 8 o’clock, clearly not yet the time for everyone to go to sleep.

Yu Jin had given up thinking about what GuLangu was currently doing and was enjoying a rare moment of reading, getting lost in his thoughts.

Suddenly, a knocking sound interrupted Yu Jin’s thoughts.
He got up to open the door and found Brother Nan, who returned covered in dust.
“Brother Nan, you’re finally back.
The boss has also returned today.”

Brother Nan entered the room and poured himself a glass of water.
He was accompanied by two other people, but after greeting Yu Jin, they left, indicating that they didn’t live there.
“The boss has returned? Where is he?”

Yu Jin’s mind jumped reflexively.
“Um… He’s probably just finished playing with toy models, or maybe telling bedtime stories? Or singing lullabies?”

“What?” Brother Nan clearly didn’t understand.

Yu Jin pointed in the direction of Gu Langu’s bedroom on the second floor.
“The boss brought a little fairy back this time, with a really sweet mouth.
He’s completely infatuated, and the little fairy is super cute.
Just one smile from it will make your heart melt.”

Brother Nan: ??? Did he misunderstand something? “The boss found a girlfriend?”

Yu Jin paused for a moment.
“From the voice, it should be a male.”

“What?” Brother Nan became more confused as he listened, but he was accustomed to Yu Jin’s perplexing and enigmatic character.
Although he was a bit puzzled, he didn’t take it too seriously.

To be honest, on this planet, anyone could find a boyfriend, but Nan Ge was certain that Gu Langu wouldn’t.
Gu Langu had no desires in that aspect at all.
If one day the boss really did bring a boyfriend back, even if it was just a dormouse, Brother Nan would be overjoyed to the point of tears.

After settling the little dormouse, Gu Langu faintly heard Brother Nan’s voice and came out of the room.

Yu Jin immediately became obedient.
“Boss, please sit.
Brother Nan must have brought back some news.”

Gu Langu didn’t refuse and came downstairs to sit at the table.

“This time we do have news.
The news of the cold wave is true.
It’s the reward obtained by the people from Zone B after winning the simulator challenge.
The management of Cang Zhan Star predicts that Zone B is already building winter equipment,” Brother Nan said.

Yu Jin’s face sagged slightly.
“The news the boss brought today is that the electromagnetic storm won’t expand to Zone C within six months.
But the cold wave is not easy to deal with.
Cang Zhan Star’s winter and summer each last for about half a year.
If the electromagnetic storm sweeps over while the cold wave is still ongoing, what should we do? Should we migrate?”

Brother Nan replied, “Migration is not easy.
Only the key figures in Zone B have knowledge of the cold wave’s movement trajectory.
It’s a gamble to migrate there.
We’re not ready to confront Zone B head-on.”

Yu Jin and Brother Nan couldn’t help but look at Gu Langu, waiting for his response.
After all, Gu Langu had never disappointed them before.

Just as Gu Langu was about to speak, a creaking sound of a door opening suddenly came from upstairs.

Brother Nan saw Gu Langu’s bedroom door silently open without any external force! This eerie situation startled Brother Nan, and he immediately stood up.
“What’s going on?”

In Brother Nan’s vigilant gaze, the faint sound of footsteps echoed.
Brother Nan’s scalp tingled.
Could it be that there really was a ghost? Or a remnant energy being from the native inhabitants of Cang Zhan Star?

At the railing on the second floor, a furry little ball appeared.
The warm brown ball climbed down the stairs step by step, and its gaze casually glanced at the first floor, where Shu Shuishui suddenly noticed the presence of an additional person.

Brother Nan watched as the little dormouse that had just agilely descended the stairs abruptly froze and then quietly moved its body to hide behind a fence, peeking with its furry little head, curiously looking at him.

Brother Nan, wearing a puzzled expression, looked at Shu Shuishui hiding behind the fence and finally spoke after a while.
“Is this the little fairy you were talking about?”

Shu Shuishui’s ears trembled.
This person was sharp; they saw through his identity as a fairy at their first meeting.
So Shu Shuishui became even more cautious and even climbed up another flight of stairs, hiding behind a higher-level fence, peeking with its little head, expressing its vigilant attitude.

Brother Nan: “…”

“Am I that scary?” Brother Nan asked Yu Jin next to him.
“And what exactly is this? Did the boss bring it back? A dyed fur mouse?”

Brother Nan didn’t expect that just after he finished speaking, before Yu Jin and Gu Langu could respond, the little dormouse, only showing its small head behind the fence, instinctively reached up and touched its own little head, as if feeling its hair.


Author’s note:

Shu Shuishui: “Deceptive rat! I didn’t dye my fur!”

And thus, the feud between Shu Shuishui and Brother Nan begins!
